Inspiron 5557 no splash screen and BIOS setup access after update BIOS 1.2.6

Q: Inspiron 5557 no splash screen and BIOS setup access after update BIOS 1.2.6

The same issue from BIOS 1.2.5 is happening with BIOS 1.2.6. After the update, the boot screen remain totally black (no Dell logo) and you cant enter in the BIOS interface (no video at all).
The workaround is to downgrade to BIOS version 1.2.3
The windows boots as usual, and maybe this is the reason that users havent noticed this issue.
The bios upgrade/downgrade is automated. No mouse clicks are needed. Just wait computer to boot and wait some minutes. After this (blind) downgrade (because there is no video), you will see the dell logo once again and everything works as usual.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

System: Dell Inspiron 5557
Bios: from 1.2.4 to 1.2.5
Everything went fine when updating BIOS. After, no video (dell splash screen), no video on entering BIOS. But If I turn on the machine and let it boot, after windows loads, video start working.
No lucky on ctrl+esc or entering the bios (I cant see anything at all). All bios strategies not working. I tried to downgrade bios inside windows 10, but it still persists on 1.2.5.

Help me please!

I attempted to update the BIOS on my Inspiron 5565 (AMD-A10 9600P) from .1.0.5 to v1.0.8 using the 'BIOS flash update' with the BIOS update file downloaded (and md5 hash verified on a usb key) from the drivers download page:
http://www.dell.com/support/home/uk/en/ukbsdt1/Drivers/DriversDetails?driverId=C52F8
I followed the instructions on this support page:
http://www.dell.com/support/article/us/en/04/SLN171755/updating-the-dell-bios-in-linux-and-ubuntu-environments?lang=EN#Flashing%20a%20Dell%20BIOS%20in%20a%20Linux%20Only%20Environment
to copy the BIOS update file to the USB but when I find and select the file in the 'BIOS flash update' function it reads the USB key (usb key read/write light flashing) but prompts with 'Invalid file!'. I have not renamed the file at all and I also tried to update to the other downloadable BIOS update file, v1.0.6 but get the same error message 'Invalid File!'
Reason for trying to update via the BIOS update feature is that I have a blank hard drive and I'm having trouble loading Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS (but seem to have no issue with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS) so trying to update the BIOS as first troubleshooting elimination step.
Any tips or suggestions most appreciated.

I made a clean installation and downloaded necessary drivers from Lenovo's support site. 
It has been a long time since I have had this laptop, so I decided to update the BIOS as well.
 
The updated BIOS version is B0CNA0WW. I'm uncertain of my previous version, most likely the version that the laptop was shipped with, as this is the first time I updated my BIOS.
 
 
Is it possible to revert to previous BIOS version without any further problems?
And if not, how can I get rid of the utterly displeasing BIOS splash in the boot? Or maybe change the splash image?

I got dell inspiron 5423 core i3 processor windows 8.1 installed, 500GB SATA and 32 GB SSD. My bios is Aptio American Megatrends A13 and secure boot on. I have done some disc clean up earlier.
After rebooting it showed the Dell screen with the F2, F12 options but after that it goes straight to a black screen with a frozen white underscore. It is not booting from its hard drive and it has got secure boot enabled so that i can not boot using usb/CD drive. I pressed the power button to turn off then back on my computer and proceeded to press first F2 but it went back to the black screen with a white underscore, then restarted again pressing F12 went to the black screen again, restarted one more time pressing F8 for safe mode but nothing works. So i will not get past the initial dell screen. I have done ePSA and comes with error code 2000-0332 video integrity problem. Also i have done CMOS battery trick as well. Nothing is working. I've looked up on Google what to do, but couldn't find a definitive solution. Please help.

I've tried the suggestions on what to do if the computer won't boot, such as chkdsk and fixmbr. Did the hardware scan, all is well.

chkdsk said it fixed some stuff... not very specific on what it was.
fixmbr said the boot record was either bad or non-standard, so I went ahead and re-wrote it, but with the same result.

Hi I have an old Fujitsu Siemens Scaleo 600 pc which I use as my spare pc. It has to be said that the only original bits on it are the case, motherboard and optical drives.

I used it a bit yesterday and shut it down as normal, started it to day but it just hangs on the log in screen. The mouse cursor works and I can click on the user but thats as far as it goes.

I thought that I wold try and boot it in safe mode but found that I could not access the bios setup screen. The spash screen when it starts up says it's the DEL button while the cover of the recovery disk says its F2. Well I've tried both plus many others and no joy. I can press TAB and get the BIOS VIEW but as I said can't get the BIOS SETUP.

Tried starting up with the recovery disk in both the DVD drive and CD-Rom drive but no luck with that either as it doesn't seem to reconnise the disc.

I've also tried it with a couple of other hard drives fitted but the same results.

Well that's about far as my knowledge goes so any help would be much appreciated.

Many thanks.

If you've waited for 20-30 min to see if the recovery worked to no effect, you really don't have another option at this point.  It'll likely cost about what a replacement board does to have the BIOS chip unsoldered, flashed and resoldered.

That said, $150 is a lot to spend on a system this old.  It may make more sense to replace the system.

All fans spin up initially but then go very quiet (but still spinning). I've tried going into the bios settings but the pc won't pick up any keystrokes on USB keyboard in any of the USB ports (keyboard does light up but only in a few ports).

This is a weird one. I was running a NVidia 220GT PCIe video card on the PC listed in my system specs. I just swapped that for a ZOTAC NVidia GT 640 PCIe card. Now on boot up I don't see my BIOS splash screen. It's just a blank black screen with one beep and then the Windows 7 loading screen. I can still access the BIOS and look at all my settings. I tried turning show Full Screen Logo on and off and it made no difference. If I turn the BIOS fast boot option off I get the BIOS splash screen, but that adds a lot of time to my boot time. I'm just wondering if anybody else has experienced anything like this? I can still access my BIOS so its not causing me any grief. Weird?

A:No BIOS splash screen on bootup

It looks like its just the full screen logo that doesn't show. On a cold start this morning I saw the BIOS post screen with the logo turned off. On an F 10 save and reboot it doesn't show. It's not a Windows problem and its not a BIOS setting so its just something to do with timing and the new Video card.

Hey

My grandma has a Dell Inspiron 1545 (I think).

When one tries to power it on, the power light comes on for several seconds, and then goes off. Things start spinning up in the first couple seconds after the power button is pressed. The screen is completely blank the whole time. It seems like it must be a power issue, but she thinks that the battery should have lasted from when the power supply tanked to when she found the computer powered off. What could be wrong? (Hope this is intelligible; I'm rather tired.)

Thanks,

B
 

A:No BIOS splash screen (or boot)

This is a laptop isn't it?
Have you tried powering it up on the mains but with the battery removed?
If the powersupply has died then it is possible that it killed the battery in the process, so the theory of the battery taking over won't necessarily be the case.

There should be a bios setting that enables/disables the logo. Read your manual as to the exact location of menus/options.

Hello,

I am having an unusual problem with Desktop PC. Sometimes when I boot the computer it will show the Gigabyte splash and then go black the moment it switches to what would have been the "starting windows" screen. I am positive that it is not the monitor because I never hear the windows login sounds or music. When this happens the only way I am able to fix it temporarily is by re-slotting the memory sticks in the motherboard. I did this on a suggestion that it may be a bad stick, but based on my experience of switching them out and using them separately this doesn't appear to be the case.

Hey @cgruchy11,  Thank you for joining in the HP Support Forums and asking for help with the BIOS Update on your HP Pavilion Notebook - 15-ab137ca that you are stuck on.  Did you manage to get the BIOS Update to finish?  Is it the BIOS Startup menu that you are trying to have not come up when you start the Notebook? The Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) is responsible for setting up devices used by your system so that those devices can send and receive data. The BIOS does a checklist on your hardware to make sure everything is functioning properly to be able to continue to the Operating System.  Updating the BIOS, also known as "flashing the BIOS," replaces the BIOS firmware. When completed successfully, a BIOS update can fix or enhance aspects of a notebook's performance, or provide support for newly installed hardware. However, if an incorrect update is installed or if the update process is interrupted, the motherboard can be permanently damaged, leaving the computer unable to boot.

I had Windows 10 on this PC with the latest BIOS update favoring Windows 10. However, decided to downgrade back to Windows 7 using a fresh install I got on my USB drive. Everything works fine, but the only thing I noticed is that it skips the BIOS splash screen and goes straight to the Starting Windows screen. I went into my BIOS today (B85M-DS3H) and found that 'fast boot' is disabled. I didn't install Windows 7 using UEFI as far as I know as the Detected boot Environment line in the setupact.txt file state BIOS and not UEFI. I made sure to have it set to the optimized default settings after installing Windows 7.

I don't see this as a major problem as I can still access the BIOS and the OS is working, but I'm just curious if this is normal or bad.

A:Windows 7 skips BIOS splash screen

There is nothing to worry about. On my board (remember the BIOS is the board and has nothing to do with software) sometimes I see the BIOS flash screen and sometimes I don't. There is nothing to worry about.

Some BIOS allow you to disable the splash screen so you don't see anything also fast boot would also disable it (but you checked that was disabled anyway).

I am now at my wits end having just upgraded some of my hardware.

I recently bought myself a new WD 2Tb sata drive, a new midi tower case and a Gigabyte GeForce 970 GTX card. As my old tower couldn't take the new card, i needed a new tower that could.

I spent Thursday stripping out the PSU, mobo, soundcard, hd drives and RAM and rebuilding them in to the new rig. Apart from some swearing when i realised the ATX cable literally only just made it to the socket with some strategic manoeuvres, the new build was ready to go. I hit the switch.... and everything stopped at the bios splash screen....

I hve read through some of the other threads here for any help and nothing worked. I've reset CMOS, i've taken out the battery, i've stripped everything out and reseated all connectors, i've tried each device individually. The speaker is sounding the single 'everything okay' beep. I take out the RAM and reboot and the speaker goes mad, as expected. The keyboard is working fine as it allows a ctrl/alt/del reset, but won't let me in to the BIOS.

I was about to put the original rig back together to see if something went wrong between the two, but one of my lovely kids spilled a glass of orange over my old GFX card....

Help!

Current unworking build;
Gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H
Intel i5 6400
4Gb DDR3 Corsair XMS3
1Tb Seagate Barracuda
2Tb Western Digital
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970 Windforce
Inwin GT1 Midi ATX case

Hi all. I'm trying to change the BIOS splash screen on my T430 using the newest Lenovo BIOS update utility but every time I run it I get the error "Failed to do module option" along with error code 211 in the updater's logs. I'm running it on windows 10. Any ideas about what's causing this? Any help or advice is greatly appreciated.

Hello guy and gals, I've been trying to diagnose this problem with the help of a few friends and we're out of ideas at this point.

The computer in question is a home built PC the worked fine for two years before this problem occurred,I'm told the problem first started when it got a virus but I don't know for sure. The PC has an Asus P5N32-E SLI MB and it's running Vista Home Premium 32-Bit.

When I start the computer it loads to the bios splash screen and normally freezes there, occasionally I'm able to get into the bios before it freezes where I can see that all of the temps are normal and nothing jumps out as unusual, however I only have about 20 seconds to look through it before it freezes. Before this started it would just just keep rebooting when it got to the post screen with occasional distortion of the bios splash screen.

I have tried replacing the hard drive with a known working one, and I have replaced the video card with a known working one; I have also pulled all of the ram out of the computer and tried each stick individually without success. I have pulled the battery several times and cleared the capacitors and so far I have gotten nowhere.

Any ideas are greatly appreciated, thank you in advance for your help.
 

A:PC Won't Boot Past BIOS Splash Screen

Only suspects left then are Motherboard/CPU and PSU. I guess you can try to check atleast CPU in some other board if possible to start with.

My computer has been randomly freezing at the initial BIOS splash screen for the last month or so.

It's about a 50/50 chance of it freezing vs a normal boot up with no other problems in the computers operations whatsoever...

Any suggestions?

A:Computer Hangs @ BIOS Splash Screen 50/50

How old is this computer? Do you get any amount of beeps or combination of beeps?

A freeze on POST can mean hardware failure, usually imminent hard drive failure.
Check the RAM is connected securely, and the HDD.

Hi,

My hp pavillion a6500f running Windows Vista recently froze. I restarted it and the computer froze at the splash screen where it says "Hp" and "intel" and gives the options for setup, diagnostics, etc. However, when I try to enter setup, nothing happens. I am not a computer expert but am familiar enough to have done the following things to try to figure out what is broken:

1) I unplugged everything from the motherboard except power and fans. Same result as above.
2) I took one memory stick out. Same result. Tried the other. Same result.
3) Clear CMOS on the motherboard with the jumper. NOW I can get past the blue splash screen to a black screen that says something like "default BIOS settings loaded due to bios update or checksum issue. Press F10 to setup or allow boot to continue" I press F10 but it just proceeds to boot and says "Disk Boot Failure, insert ...."
4) Tried 3 with hard drive plugged in. Same result as 3.
5) Tried 3 with everything plugged in. Back to being stuck at blue splash screen.
6) Replaced CMOS battery. None of the results changed.

Does this seem like the motherboard is bad or the bios or both? If it is just the bios, can you reflash the bios without being able to access it? I don't have a floppy drive and I don't even know what the default boot sequence is. I don't know what type of BIOS we have or what version we have without being able to access it either.

Thank you in advance for any opini... Read more

So I've got a HP slimline s3400f that locks up at the bios splash screen. Upon boot i hit f10 to get into the bios. Come the HP boot screen, where it says hit f10 for setup, esc for boot menu, ect. The computer freezes.
I am not able to boot off any discs because i cant get into the boot menu.
Cant roll back the bios, cannot access the bios.
I've tried flashing the bios, pulling the CMOS battery and switching the jumper over. Didnt work.
I've tried rotating the RAM and testing both sticks alone in the slots. Didn't work.

The initial problem that caused all of this was because an ipod wasn't properly recognized by a computer. Apple tech support told the user to "update the bios." In no way shape or form would updating the bios fix this problem, but hey that's apple tech for you.
The user went through with this update and now we have our situation.

I am going to test the hard drive and make sure there are no bad sectors or anything because I heard that there is a possibility that the hard drive could be going.

The motherboard is a m2n61-ar.
